Hello,

I have just installed the nusphere in my local machine. I have cgi script which i wanted to execute in my local machine. I have kept wooden dir in nscgi-bin foler. When I am trying to exeute the wooden dir files..

i get You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/wooden on this server.

How do i solve this problem. since i am executing files on local machine how do i set permission locally.



1) In the release not i found the following content about Nusphere
2) i have installed nusphere in my local computer and using the same for development.
3) my cgi code is in source form.. here is example

use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser);

$test = $ENV{'HTTP_USER_AGENT'};
$test =~ s/\"//g;
$test =~ s/\)//g;
$test =~ s/\(//g;
$test =~ s/\;//g;
$test =~ s/\'//g;
$test =~ s/\///g;
$test =~ s/ //g;
$test =~ s/\.//g;



It's not showing even .html page in dir, if i tried instead of .p or .cgi

cgi-bin is a special directory and will never show any htmls.
This directory is for keeping and running cgi scripts only. No source content can be shown.

Do replace #!/usr/bin/perl with #!perl
if doesn't help, make sure you can run

perl yourscriptname

and get adequate results.

below is a sample script hellocgi.pl that should work:

Code:
#!perl


print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><body>\n";
$time = localtime();
print "<h2>cgi-bin test script</h2><br><br>\n";
print "<hr>local time is $time<br><br><hr>\n";

print "<b>Environment variables</b><br>\n";
foreach my $key (sort keys %ENV) {
   print "\"$key\" = \"$ENV{$key}\"<BR>\n";
}
print "</body></html>\n";

read(STDIN, $input, $ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'}) if ($ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'});


Code below (cgisamp.pl) shows how to use CGI module:

Code:
#!perl -w

use strict;
use CGI;


my $q = new CGI;
print $q->header;
print $q->start_html("Title");
print "This is the output from cgisamp.pl";
print $q->end_html;

regarding access rights, take a look at cgi-bin configuration settings to see
if they are somewhat like this:

Code:

    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Program Files/NuSphere/TechPlat/apache/cgi-bin/"
    <Directory "C:/Program Files/NuSphere/TechPlat/apache/cgi-bin">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>

what happens if you run your script from a console (command prompt) ?

Well...
actually it is the result of running perl script, not the content. Content as you stated before starts with #!perl.

what happens if you put hello.pl into cgi-bin directory and run it using apache ? like below
http://localhost/cgi-bin/hello.pl
